What is IBW?
International Babywearing Week is basically 7 days of classes, special events, and outreach activities taking place in person and online, designed to celebrate and educate about the benefits of babywearing. There will be opportunities to enter raffles and drawings for amazing prizes along the way. Come to one event, or all of them!
Every year IBW dons a new theme. This year's theme is Embrace Your World.
Each day, a new event will represent another hashtag phrase following this theme of Embrace Your... Follow these hashtags on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to see what other groups across the nation are doing to embrace their world! Here are some examples you might see on social media:
